There’s nothing better than a movie seen in the great outdoors. Well, maybe one thing: a movie in the great outdoors that stars James Franco and co-stars a bloody, amputated limb.
I continue to marvel at how Danny Boyle made this story so suspenseful given everything we already knew about the plot. But he did it. Sometimes it’s a little like a glorified music video, but Franco remedies all that. It’s a powerful performance. You’ll be glad to be watching it outside, though, because the claustrophobia of it is intense.
